San Leandro, Calif. — Actor-producer Anil Kapoor will soon adapt the ABC sitcom “Modern Family” for Indian audiences, he told the Mumbai Mirror. Also Read - Anil Kapoor Gives Fitness Goals to Hrithik Roshan

“I’m close to finalizing the deal. Once all the stakeholders come together, we will take a call on the talent and the channel. Making a show is as time-consuming as making a film, but I’d like it to go on air as soon as possible,” he told the tabloid.

“Modern Family” has earned Emmy Awards five years in a row for its hilariously skewed mockumentary approach to family life. Variety calls it “smart, nimble and best of all, funny, while actually making a point about the evolving nature of what constitutes ‘family.’”

Kapoor said, “I think India is ready for a ‘Modern Family.’ The middle class is growing rapidly and we have a new government that makes the future look bright.”

Kapoor had success adapting FOX television’s action series “24” to Indian television for the Colors network; as its star and producer, he is currently at work on season two of the show.
